(from website) Creator John Wilson – who with wife Vuthea created the entire concept - says the whole idea of Fotofone is to give people or businesses the opportunity to create their very own personalised phone cover to protect their mobile phone at a reasonable price. He says mobile phones have now become a key part of life for millions of Aussies.
My kids seem to be growing by the second, and like most mums I have an obsession with photos and keeping precious moments forever.So, when I saw Fotofone in Australia's major Family & Parenting magazine, I had to have one now.
Fotofone was aspired by an anxious Hubby & Wife team in Victoria / Australia who wanted to proudly display a photo of their then expected little baby girl on their mobile phones. Over 2 1/2 years later John & Vuthea's dream, success and hard work has become today's latest mobile accessory "must have".
Fotofone covers are Australian made hard plastic phone covers and not simple stickers which in my personal experience have always peeled off. The website is easy to navigate, userfriendly and gives you complete control in the design of your own personalised photo cover.
I received both the plastic cover and the rubber cover for my review, and believe me once you see the covers you'll know why I'm so excited..
Like most new accessories, I did have to play around with the cover before getting the hang of connecting it to the phone, its easy to "snap on" but tricky to remove. Also with the cover attached, the phone does feel the slightest bit thicker than normal (nothing dramatic) but you do get use to it after a couple of days.
My babies photos were taken using a low resolution mobile, but the photo on rubber cover turned out amazing.
As a tip, if you choose the rubber (with black background) either use a Black & White photo or a bright photo as this will not only bring out the photo more but I think it will look much better.
Because its Rubber, there wasnt any visible wear to the cover nor to the photo, and was very easy to slip on /off of the phone.
Initially, I had two concerns about the covers - first I thought the cover would fall off . But once you snap it on you know there is no way the cover will fall off. Second, my bag is a scary place to be and I thought about the scratches or damages to the photos during my day to day activities but what surprised me was, there was only the slightest wear but nothing to the photo. The quality is impressive.!
Overall, its the best and affordable present for anyone or simply yourself. Fotofone also offer gift certificates.
